Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
Four acres of this nine acre hillside property comprise gardens, the house, art studio and outbuildings, with another five acres kept in hay. Doing all the work themselves for the last 25 years the current owners limbed up and contoured existing overgrown trees and shrubs into cloud-like shapes and clipped and cleared out underbrush from an overgrown tangle of juniper, Mugo pine, Alberta spruce, yew and japonica to create the space underneath for a secret garden of hosta, astilbe, lamium, pachysandra and ferns. Many more conifers were added to the stands of spruce and dwarf conifers installed by the previous owners. Planting beds were shaped and filled with massed perennials, ground covers and shrubs, with a limited selection of varieties chosen to achieve a calmer effect. There are three connecting perennial gardens, a formal boxwood garden, and a rose garden, planted containers around the swimming pool and the house, and a woodland walk with 50 varieties of hostas. The house was fitted out with large picture windows for viewing the garden and the Litchfield Hills that are 35 miles in the distance. A swimming pool was designed by them and built on a plateau the owners dug out of their sloping property.
The owners have propagated most of the boxwood, built walls, borders and walkways from rocks found on the property, and built a wattle arbor and gate from branches. Plant materials are saved all season and dried and turned into artwork sold in a sideline business.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. G. Curtis (former owners, 1959-1989); Ralph Schuler (rock wall contractor, 1994); Phil Dobson (pool contractor, 1989); John Deak (building contractor, 1998); Michael Rivera (sculptor "Split Bamboo", 2000).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Gannett Garden (West Cornwall, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield County -- Cornwall -- West Cornwall
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and site plan.
Former Title:
The Farm
General:
The present owners established the garden in 1962 by planting the hemlock hedge north of the house and 250 blue spurce along the western boundary to screen the property from the railroad and the town road. The property was a small (55 acres) dairy farm until the Prestons sold it in 1926 to two silent film actors, who named it "The Farm." Some still call it "The Preston Place." The upper meadows on the high ground reverted to forest criss-crossed by stone walls. The three neglected barns have been rebuilt. The current gardens comprise cultivated beds along Preston Brook, three bridges, shade and perennial gardens, daylily walks, a rhododendron grove, a dahlia field, and five animal sculptures.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Samuel Wickwire family (former owners, 1776-1820); James F. Bradford family (former owners, 1820-1842); Alanson Preston family (former owners, 1842-1926); Donald Cameron and James Morrison (former owners, 1926-1961); and Denis Curtiss (sculptor, ongoing).

Cornwall -- Henry's Hill

Provenance:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Henry's Hill (Cornwall Hollow, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield County -- Cornwall -- Cornwall Hollow
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of an article, and a write-up of the family's history with the property.
General:
Property records for the large parcel of land in which Henry's Hill is located date back to the late 18th century, and the land was used for farming and foresting into the twentieth century. The current owners inherited the house and about eleven acres and set about redesigning the house and installing gardens. The main garden at Henry's Hill is bordered by old low stone walls planted with 8-foot deep borders of perennials and shrubs, with two foot wide maintenance paths inside the walls, designed by Tiziana Hardy. A formal garden comprised of two varieties of boxwood, winter gem and green velvet, container plantings, blocks of stone, and gravel paths was established north of the house. A water garden comprised of three ponds surrounded by compatible plantings lies to the northeast outside the walls. An island bed of ornamental grasses lies east of the house.
Another 300 acres were set aside in 1984 through a conservation easement that protects 40 acres of farmland, more than 200 acres of forest, and an aquifer underlying the Hollenbeck River and watershed from further development. Nearly a mile of the Appalachian Trail transverses the easement property.
In the 1920s during the ownership of Dr. and Mrs. Lieb flower gardens designed by the Elm City Nursery Company, Woodmont Nursery Inc., Landscape Engineers of New Haven, Connecticut, replaced old pastures. The property was no longer farmed and was used as a summer and week-end estate. The subsequent owner, Laurens Hammond, invented the Hammond organ; his widow Roxana Scoville Hammond was responsible for the conservation and protection plan. Some of the agricultural land attached to Henry's Hill has been repurposed as a beef cattle business by the next generation of the owners' family.
Tim Prentice, who renovated the house circa 2000, is a local architect and kinetic sculptor responsible for maintaining the historic character of many houses in the area of Cornwall Hollow.
Persons associated with the garden include Thaddeus Ford and descendants (formers owners, 1782-1860); Heman Harrison (former owner, 1860-1897); M.E. Harrison (former owner, 1897-1906); E. Baldwin (former owner, 1906-1920); Dr. & Mrs. Charles Lieb (former owners, 1920-1957); Laurens & Roxana Scoville Hammond (former owners, 1957-2000); Tiziana Hardy, (landscape designer, 2001); Tim Prentice (redesign of house, 2000-2001); Mary Daalhuyzen (Head gardener, 2001-2008).

General:
This property has been owned since the mid-17th century, with the first small house built circa 1690 and the present Georgian style house first built in 1792, designed by William Spratt, a British architect who practiced in Connecticut after being imprisoned during the Revolutionary War. The property has been owned by members of only two families during most of its history, including Anna Roosevelt Cowles, the older sister of President Theodore Roosevelt, who had the first ornamental garden installed circa 1900, replacing what had been a barnyard. According to family lore Frederick Law Olmsted's architectural firm designed the garden but no documentation has been found supporting that claim. At present the 1.75 acre property is described as a green garden comprised of spacious lawns with island perennial beds, various boxwood hedges, and mature trees planted in the 1950s that include some notable specimens. There is a non-chlorinated cement swimming pool that supplies water for the sprinklers in the garden. An old smokehouse in one corner of the garden is used as a toolshed.
The woodland gardens around the perimeter of the property date back to the earliest landscape design but the original rose and cutting gardens have been replaced by lawns. Island beds with perennials, bulbs and shrubs have been cut into the lawns breaking up its mostly rectilinear shape. In the 1930s a high stone wall replaced the original picket fence along the dirt road in front of the house, retaining the original 1792 Chinese Chippendale-style gate designed by Spratt said to be based on a water gate in London, England that he knew. In recent years walkways have been added, the pool has been fenced for safety, and a new flower bed was created next to a new low stone wall.
Oldgate features several historic trees documented by the Connecticut Notable Tree project in 2007: a Nordmann fir, a Kousa dogwood, a Royal Empress Paulownia, a fragrant snowbell and a southern Japanese hemlock all have been cited as among the largest of their species in the state. There is a dawn redwood in the garden believed to be descended from seeds found in China in the 1940s that were germinated at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. Storms have made changes to the mature trees that shaded this garden, including the snowstorm of October 2011 that felled a paulownia and scores of branches from other trees, necessitating more watering and more planting of trees, particularly native species.
Persons associated with the garden include Hooker family members (former owners, 1645-1733); John Nash and Samuel Nash (former owners, 1733-1747); Isaac Bidwell (former owner, 1747-1792); Cowles family members (owners 1792- ); William Spratt (architect , circa 1792); William Sheffield Cowles, Jr. and Margaret Krech Cowles (garden designers (1932-1986); Bill Cowles (architect, 1986-1995); Evan Cowles (landscape architect, 1986- ); George Manus (sculptor, 2002); Gordon Hayward (garden designer, 2010).

General:
Natural elevations and rock outcroppings, a colonial style house with a peanut-shaped swimming pool, a few azaleas and rhododendrons, woodlands and an old stone wall described this more than two acre property when it was purchased in 1975. Since then the house has been modified and expanded, a waterfall and koi pond surrounded by alpine and perennial borders was built into the rocky outcroppings, and rose and perennial gardens were planted in the early years of ownership and have matured and naturalized into their settings. Plant selections include floribunda, hybrid tea and David Austin roses, bulbs, perennials and annuals, and flowering shrubs and trees that provide continuous bloom from spring through autumn. The colors pink, blue, and purple are favored in the plant selections. Distinct garden areas start at the front of the house with foundation hollies, rhododendrons, boxwoods, a Japanese split leaf maple, a thirty foot tall Japanese stewartia, and a pruned crab apple. A hedge of roses spills down to the swimming pool garden which has a flagstone terrace surrounded by roses, perennials, and annuals that include geraniums, foxgloves, cleomes, and Casa Blanca lilies.
Three kousa dogwoods anchor the pool garden and one of them leads to a semi-formal rose garden that has become less structured over time with perennials planted among the roses. An antique J.W. Fiske cast iron urn set on a brick platform is planted with annuals in shades of pink, purple, and white. The rose garden is backed by a hedge of viburnum, boxwood, quince, and rose of Sharon which transitions to an alpine garden of dwarf evergreens, junipers, spruce, foxglove, and columbine with dwarf split leaf maples on either side of the waterfall to the koi pond. Natural granite steps ascend to the flagstone and brick terrace behind the house. Another hedge enclosed garden with an antique gate was intended for vegetables but became a cutting garden that includes tomatoes and herbs. In the 1990's brambles at the edge of the woodlands were gradually removed to create a path that splits and goes uphill to the gazebo and downhill to the small pond on the property. In 2000, deer fencing was installed around the entire perimeter.
Persons associated with the garden include: Dan Taylor (landscape designer, 1978-1979); Sam Bridge Nurseries (plant material, 1995- ); Beth Henry (sea lion sculptor, 1979).

General:
The original landscape was designed by landscape architect Thomas M. Desmond in the 1920's when the Federal-style brick house was built on a two-thirds acre lot in a newly developed neighborhood. Remaining features from the early gardens include a sugar maple tree in front of the house, a weeping beech at the side near the sun porch, curving beds along the back and side perimeters with mixed conifers, and winding paths of stepping stones. A venerable Japanese maple next to the original bluestone patio was pruned to reveal its branching structure, wisteria was removed from the house, and there are plans to remove rhododendron that have grown unattractive. Desmond's original planting plan had five fruit trees placed around the back lawn, a cutting salad garden, and a service area outside the laundry room, now converted to a breakfast room that opens to a new second patio. A curved drive in front of the house that connects to the original driveway leading to the garage was built in the 1980's.
From the driveway the garden is entered through an archway. The expanse of back lawn is used for games and entertaining and to display a stainless steel sculpture "Monogenesis #1" by Peter Diepenbrock. A curving stone wall in one corner is the backdrop to a planted bed and containers. The western bed of evergreens also has flowers planted on either side of the path of stepping stones.
In 1929 the architect Clifton C. West wrote articles for the Hartford Courant newspaper called "Your Prospective Home" with recommendations for designing houses and gardens that match the design of this house.
Persons associated with the garden include Samuel Gross (former owner, 1923-1938); Elbridge M. Beecher (former owner, 1938- ); James A. and Karen P. Grigsby (former owners, dates unknown); Clifton C. West (architect, 1923); Thomas M. Desmond (1884-1950) (landscape architect, 1924); Edward Cape/Wilhelm Associates (architectural renovations drawings, 1985); Peter Diepenbrock (sculptor, 2002).

General:
The Spiral of Life Gardens is transformative in many senses. What was once an ordinary one-acre suburban lot with lawn, shrubs and a dogwood tree now has about 120 native plants in free-form garden beds and habitats, and learning stations for the classes that visit. The owner and designer of the garden drew on concerns about the environment and her own spiritual convictions when she began the transformation by creating a sacred universe garden in a spiral directly behind the house that has a honeysuckle bush and birdbath at its center and native purple flowers including coneflower, false indigo and bee balm along with inspirational messages posted beside the pathway. Irregularly-shaped beds throughout the property are connected by grass paths and each is named for a particular function or concept, such as invitation, Zen, butterfly, peace, rain, and memorial. The plot is bordered on one side by land trust woodlands that, along with the garden's planted habitat edges, provide food and cover for wildlife. According to Vivian Felton, a conservationist with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service and local contact for its Ecological Landscaping Network, the garden reflects three themes: environmental awareness, diversity of plantings for wildlife conservation, and spiritual experience.
In 2006 the Spiral of Life garden was approved as an educational site for the New England Wildflower Society which holds programs each June on the property. Also starting in 2006 Connecticut wildlife biologist Peter Picone has been convening educational programs in the Spiral of Life garden. The Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District cited the owner with a special merit award on October 18, 2008. Water conservation is achieved by the use of rain barrels to collect roof runoff and the use of permeable surfaces for the driveway and walkways. The garden has been open for visitors and students interested in its spiritual and ecological qualities.
The Peace Garden features a large sphere painted to resemble the earth as it is seen from space, which was sculpted by Kim Kuzina. The sphere is surrounded by rock compositions based on the Inuit peoples' inukshuks, which are used as navigational aids to good fishing holes.
Persons associated with the garden include Hazel G. and William C. White (former owners of property, prior to 1958); John L. Skinner (former owner, circa 1958-1965); Kim Kuzina (sculptor of "Peace" sphere, 2003); Vivian Felten (USDA Natural Resource Conservationist, 2003); Greg Lowenberg (New England Wildflower Society Educator, 2006); Peter Picone (Connecticut wildlife biologist, 2006-2009).

General:
Echo Valley Garden was transformed from an old farm property over a 40-year time span. In the large garden behind the house, island beds are set at the north and west of a spacious lawn. To the west, a 100 ft. long border of bulbs, perennials and a collection of daylilies runs irregularly along a sloping bank. The fall of the land to the east is defined into upper and lower lawns by a long juniper hedge trimed close on the edge of the upper lawn to carry the eye along the vista.

Cobble Pond Farm (Sharon, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield County -- Sharon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan.
General:
Cobble Pond Farm comprises 250 acres with meadows, wetlands, a 22-acre pond that was lined with granite blocks, or cobbles, from an abandoned castle, a sunken garden, a formal Italianate secret garden, long herbaceous perennial borders, a sugar maple and dogwood allée, a cutting and vegetable garden, and farm animals including Aberdeen Angus cows and rescued horses, donkeys and llamas. The original garden was designed beginning circa 1930 by landscape architects Percival Gallagher and Edward Clark Whiting from the Olmsted Brothers firm. The Olmsted plan blends the formality of a European garden with the bucolic landscape of the surrounding areas. Within the formal areas there are broad lawns, stone footpaths and low stone walls defining the garden rooms.
Although the garden was severely overgrown in some places and unplanted in others the current owners discovered old plans and researched the original garden before commencing to recreate it. The formal garden rooms were planted in a more contemporary style with perennials and shrubs rather than the bedding annuals from the original plans, and the old flagstone walkways were replaced with bluestone. The Italianate garden is centered with a fountain and divided into four quadrants with hedges of clipped yew. Nearby stands an apple orchard and a pergola planted with wisteria and climbing hydrangeas. The sunken garden is anchored at one end by a one-hundred year old copper beech and contains two topiary lilacs, clematis, hydrangeas, and climbing roses. In spring the cutting garden's rectangular beds are filled with the bright colors of daffodils and tulips while the summer brings on more muted colors, featuring sambucus black lace and a weeping katsura tree.
Outbuildings include a garden hospital for plants needing attention. The surrounding woodlands were the source for the mature sugar maples in the allée, and saplings are still being transplanted to the formal garden areas. The summer house built in the 1920s was named Tintern Abbey after the poem by William Wordsworth.
Persons associated with the property include: James Punnett (former owner, ca. 1905); the Schwab Family (former owners, 1905-1921); Harold A. and Margaret Milliken Hatch (former owner, 1921-1981); James T. and Kathleen M.

Place:
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- New Canaan
Kathie Moore Gardens (New Canaan, Connecticut)
Scope and Contents:
25 digital images (2008-2015) and 1 file folder.
General:
The brick Georgian colonial style house built in the 1940's with 8.3 acres was inherited but other than trees everything has been changed. One of the first projects was installing a brick wall and gazebo near the tennis court, followed by stone walls, steps, paths, picket fences, terraces, trellises, a passageway connecting the house to another building, a swimming pool, sculptures, garden statuary, garden lighting, hedges, trees, shrubs and perennials, with annuals added each year to containers and borders. The owner designed gardens that encircle the house, a gazebo garden, front entrance garden, a 160-foot wall garden, swimming pool garden and open terrace garden. Island beds and borders have been added, eliminated or replanted as the owner "paints pictures using living plants".

The property is entered on a gravel drive between stone pillars that are connected to stone walls and across a stone bridge over a stream that has fields on each side. On one side the field is filled with native plants including Joe Pye weed, butterfly weed, swamp weed, asters, ferns and sedge. The other field has grasses, irises, filipendula and a large diabolo ninebark shrub. Further along the drive there is a circle bed with a mature linden tree, shrubs, a rabbit statue, a large rock, and a Mexican baptismal font used as a planted container. The perimeter of the house is planted with boxwood hedges and ball shaped bushes, crabapple and pachysandra. Sheared boxwood hedges zigzag to the front door and cast stone containers in the formal entrance garden are planted with white flowering annuals and companion foliage. Underfoot there are granite squares edged with brick. Near a venerable sugar maple at one corner of the house the 160-foot stone retaining wall garden room built in the 1990's is planted with shrubs, perennial flowers and boxwood with planted stone baskets perched on either side of stone steps that are planted with campanula and thyme. There are many whimsical features in the gardens or on exterior surfaces of the buildings such as statues of rabbits and dogs, giant ceramic frogs, birdcages, birdhouses, reflecting mirrors and on the retaining wall "The Old Man of Mikeno", a 1923 bronze bust of the Gorilla sculpted by Carl Akeley in 1864 for the Museum of Natural History in New York.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a white picket fence planted with New Dawn roses, tansy, spirea and hydrangea; large containers in each corner of the pool hold agapanthus, sage and rosemary. A pear allée leads to the barn that is embellished with a cupola and large window sourced from antiques dealers. The brick gazebo along the drive hosts climbing hydrangea, with the garden planted with smoke bushes, variegated dogwood, hosta, white astilbe, iris, sedum, white rhododendron, white birches, lilies and dwarf spruce.

Persons associated with the garden include: George Stevens and Beatriz B. Moore (former owners, 1940-1973); George Bermejillo Moore (former owner, 1973-2015); Katharine L. Moore (owner, 1973- ); Enrique Monjo (1895-1976) (sculptor); Carl Akeley (1864-1926) (sculptor).
